President Obama’s decision to end the Washington D.C. school voucher program will affect 1,700 low income children in the D.C. area. The vouchers had been given to parents who wanted better education choices, since their assigned public schools were failing.
Ironically, Obama’s killing of this program affects two children who attend his daughter’s private school, Sidwell Friends. The children, Sarah and James Parker, attend the private school with Sasha and Malia Obama, and now will have to return to the failing public school system.
REPEATABLE: Obama appears to believe the best education options are only for the rich – like himself – and he has just eliminated choices for low income families who need education options the most.
